The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

This week for videos just fucking absolutely ruled, so before we get into what made this list, let's take a moment for all the videos that missed the cut. Among the casualties: Two eye-grabbing clips for A-list indie anthems, a mind-warping and visually sumptuous CocoRosie clip, a great bare-bones performance video,… More »

Killer Mike – “Big Beast” Video (Feat. T.I., Bun B & Trouble) (NSFW)

Well, this morning just got significantly more awesome. "Big Beast," the ridiculously badass all-star first single from Killer Mike's excellent El-P-produced new album R.A.P. Music, has a nine-minute new video, and holy shit is it ever awesome. The clip features a Steven Seagal-style foiled convenience-store robbery, an entrail feast, an old-school car chase,… More »

Freddie Gibbs – “Pull Up” (Feat. Young Jeezy & T.I.)

As someone who's been watching fast-rapping Indiana street-rap hope Freddie Gibbs for the fast few years, it's great to see him reach the point of his career where he's teaming up with actual rap superstars. On the new "Pull Up," he trades bars with new label boss Young Jeezy and fellow Atlanta fixture T.I., absolutely… More »

T.I. – “Fuck Da City Up” Video (Feat. Young Jeezy)

T.I. released his pretty great Fuck Da City Up mixtape at the very beginning of the year, and one of its finest tracks was the title joint, a chaotic collab with fellow Atlanta rap overlord Young Jeezy. In the song's brand-new video, both of them stomp around an Atlanta that's been made to look… More »

Killer Mike – “Big Beast” (Feat. Bun B, T.I. & Trouble) (Prod. El-P)

For a long time now, we've heard rumblings about a new collaborative album from badass Atlanta rap snarler Killer Mike and New York skronk-rap king El-P. This morning, we get confirmation that it exists. El produced all of the new joint R.A.P. Music. (That title stands for Rebellious African People's Music. Sure, fine.) Below, we've… More »

Download T.I. Fuck Da City Up Mixtape

Not the only Southern rapper striving to regain his former stature, T.I. dropped a mixtape on New Year's Day, teeming with firepower from the likes of Pusha T, 2 Chainz, Too Short, Dr. Dre and Jeezy as well as production credits from Just Blaze and Mannie Fresh. So, you know, Tip's not messing around. More »

T.I. – “Here Ye, Hear Ye” Video (Feat. Pharrell)

T.I.'s rumbling, horn-soaked banger "Here Ye, Hear Ye" has a video now, and Jesus Christ, remember how nasty Pharrell's verse on this thing was? Well, it's still nasty, and Pharrell looks cool as fuck lip-syncing it; his "arthritic fingers" gesture is the single best moment here. For the most part, it's an extremely simple… More »

T.I. – “Pyro”

For the first time since his most recent prison release, T.I. finally sounds absolutely comfortable and effortless on new track "Pyro." The song is a club track with a ridiculously catchy beat from Two Band Geeks, and T.I. talks about fucking a lot and namechecks a few reasonably priced sedans. Recession rap! Listen below. More »

Young Jeezy – “I Do” (Feat Jay-Z & André 3000) & “F.A.M.E.” (Feat. T.I.) Video

Jeezy called in some favors for this one! For his sound-drenched track "I Do," the once-dominant Atlanta rapper Young Jeezy managed to wrangle guest verses from two of rap's biggest names, Jay-Z and OutKast's André 3000; I honestly can't remember the last time those two rapped on the same song. Did they ever? They must've… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Not the most inspiring set of videos this week. Work harder, everyone! There were a few good ones, though, and we've got them listed below. More »

T.I. – “She Will” (Remix)

T.I.'s been on a bit of a roll since getting out of prison a few months ago, and it's been fun to watch him go. For his latest trick, he's added a verse to the Lil Wayne/Drake collab "She Will" -- something he already did to Kanye West and Jay-Z's "Niggas In Paris." O… More »

T.I. – “I’m Flexin'” Video (Feat. Big K.R.I.T.)

Even though he produced the track, Mississippi MC Big K.R.I.T.'s vocals barely appear on "I'm Flexin'," the strong new comeback single from the just-out-of-jail T.I. So it's cool to see that T.I. has granted K.R.I.T. a ton of camera time in Motion Family's video for the track. Too bad that K.R.I.T. looks way,… More »

Yelawolf – “Hard White (Remix)” (Feat. T.I. & Slaughterhouse)

For the remix of his rabid club banger "Hard White," redneck rap hero Yelawolf has recruited five guys who, like him, can rap really, really quickly: Finally-free Atlanta monarch T.I. and the four members of disgruntled-B-lister supergroup Slaughterhouse. Every last guy on the remix goes in hard, even Joe Budden, and it's a joy… More »

T.I. – “Here Ye, Hear Ye” (Feat. Pharrell)

T.I. has been making some good music since his latest prison release, but he hasn't given us another certified banger until now. "Here Ye, Hear Ye" is pretty much exactly what the world needs to hear from Tip: Hard-ass chorus-free regal talk over a slow-rolling, horn-drenched head-nodder of a beat. There's also… More »

Jay-Z & Kanye West – “Niggas In Paris (Remix Feat. T.I.)”

T.I. hops on one of the year's silliest bangers -- "I guess ya'll must have caught amnesia in my absence," he says right at the outset, you know, right after the Blades Of Glory sample -- and drops his verse first. In this verse, he's remarkably chipper about his recent prison stint. Respect the posvibes. More »

T.I. – “I’m Flexin'” (Feat. Big K.R.I.T.)

While the entire Stereogum crew was on the train to Asbury Park for ATP, T.I. broke the world off with "I'm Flexin'," his first solo track since he got out of prison and his first-ever collaboration with the Mississippi rapper/producer Big K.R.I.T., a man who seems like he was genetically engineered in a lab specifically… More »

Young Jeezy – “F.A.M.E. (Fake Ass Muthafuckas Envy)” (Feat. T.I.)

Event-rap! The new Young Jeezy single unites two of the biggest rappers in Atlanta history, and it's also one of the first new verses we've heard from T.I. since his last prison release. It's a J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League-produced track with an absolutely ridiculous acronym in its title, and as you've probably already guessed, it's about haters. More »

T.I. Gets Out Of Prison

The kang back! Two years ago, T.I. went to prison on a federal gun charge. He got out just long enough to record No Mercy, his dispiriting comeback-attempt album, before going back to prison once again last September after a gallingly dumb Las Vegas drug arrest violated his parole. But TMZ reports that he'… More »

Peace, Crazy, Love Trains Collide At The Rally To Restore Sanity And/Or Fear

Hundreds of thousands of bloggers Americans gathered at the National Mall in D.C. today to watch Comedy Central stars John Stewart and Stephen Colbert and friends (e.g., Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Father Guido Sarducci) take on (in Stewart's words) "the country's 24-hour politico-pundit-perpetual-panic conflictinator," and basically give the middle finger to Glenn Beck. Reasonableness was at the… More »

Virgin Mobile FreeFest 2010 Lineup

Virgin Mobile's Festival will be free just like it was last year. And it'll happen September 25th at Maryland's Merriweather Post Pavilion. Sir Richard Branson took a break from para-sailing or base-jumping or whatever from the Virgin Islands (seriously) to announce the bands. The lineup (with "more surprises" later, according to Sir Branson):… More »
